When Heidi Catherine was a child, she asked her mother what would happen if a widow remarried, only to one day find herself in heaven with two husbands. Her quick-thinking mother told her that in heaven there's no jealousy, only pure love. Heidi thought about this over the years, with this seed of thought unexpectedly flourishing into her novel, The SoulweaverThis novel went on to win Romance Writers of Australia's Emerald Pro award and will be released by Crooked Cat Books on 19 January 2018 and is available to pre-order now.

After being named as a highly commended author in The Hope Prize, Heidi's story, The Extra Piece, was published by Simon & Schuster in a collection of stories about disadvantage in our community. She has also been a finalist in RWA’s Little Gems competition for the past four consecutive years, which saw her short stories published in four beautiful anthologies.

Not being able to decide if she prefers living in Melbourne or the Mornington Peninsula, Heidi shares her time between both places. She is similarly pulled in opposing directions by her two sons and two dogs, remaining thankful she only has one husband.
